An early morning transfer brings you to Marahau. From here take a water taxi to Torrent Bay. This section of the track is often considered the best part, with the regenerating beech forest interspersed with amazing golden sand beaches that the Abel Tasman is famous for.

Walk over the Falls River on a very impressive suspension bridge, before winding your way along the track through verdant coastal forest. Walk over the golden sands of Bark Bay, before heading inland over a small peninsula and over the Tonga Saddle and Quarry. It’s a short walk from here to Onetahuti Bay which is one of the longest beaches on the Abel Tasman Track. Cross a boardwalk and finish your day in Awaroa Inlet, with its pristine beaches.
